I don’t know if it’s the heat, an increase in my work schedule, or what but I have felt so unmotivated and bleh (for lack of a better word) these last few weeks. I just want to stay home and hang out, not worry about running here or there, just enjoy time here
It’s hit me like a ton of bricks, maybe it’s a sign from above that we need to stop running around and slooooow down and enjoy summer?
but then again, this could be the cause…
yep, we’re expecting number three! 😀 I’ll be 18 weeks tomorrow and I’m due on Jan 5th. So far things look good, I’m feeling good, and we’re all so excited! I have a strong feeling it’s a girl, don’t have any names even close to picked out.
But pregnant or not pregnant, I feel like I don’t have that drive to get up and work on something like I normally do. Even blogging. (sorry about that) I don’t know what to write about even though I have a TON of pictures saved and ready for a post.
Plus this, is always staring me in the face
or this (every day, several times a day)
If you’re wondering, yes, I always throw up my arms in the air when I go potty in the attic.
After reading this post, I realized I needed to switch things up and not focus on the laundry or the toys, or the dishes, or the insert daily chore that’s always there waiting for me here. Those things will always be waiting for me, even 5 minutes after I clean them.
Last night after vacuuming (he vacuumed, for the record), I mentioned rearranging the family room to Doug. Love it! It’s different, wish we would have tried this arrangement sooner!
I should have put a pretty something on the table but I guess now’s the time to pull “the pregnant card” and tell you that you get what you get. 😉
My foyer shelf/display area has been sitting blank for a while, so I took some inspiration from plants in our front planters, pulled some wood and unused wall décor up from the basement and although it’s not perfect design wise, it was FREE. And QUICK.
And – BONUS POINTS - I used garlic as tchotchkes. 😉
Finally, I started a project that has been bugging me for a while now. I’ve been wanting to paint the kids’ bookshelf white and kinda redesign it altogether so it’ll actually, ya know, hold books.
Got to work in the room with a low-VOC primer and paint, and wow. Love.
But CRAP! NOW I REALLY WANT TO PAINT MY TRIM!!!! I knew this would happen.
Regardless of the low-VOC, we moved the kids into our room so they’re not huffing any paint fumes and I think they love it just about as much as I love the look of the white trim.
So although I don’t know if we’ll be able to finish off our attic and go from a 2 bedroom to a 3 bedroom before the baby arrives, seeing our ONE working room airy, roomy, and looking good with three beds in it?! Oh my gosh, I could care less. This picture puts my crazy mind at ease.
We will totally rock the two bedroom house with three kids! 🙂
Have you been feeling unmotivated?
How are you beating the summer bleh’s?
